Christina Romer is resigning from the White House’s Council of Economic Advisers effective in September.

What is the White House going to do without the kind of keen insight only Romer could bring to the table?

(Bloomberg) — Christina Romer, who chairs the White House’s Council of Economic Advisers, said the U.S. needs stronger job growth to lower the nation’s unemployment rate.

The scary thing is that among Team Obama, this doesn’t qualify as a painfully obvious observation, which is probably why Romer was butting heads with the White House and is probably the real reason she’s leaving. She appears to have a little too much common sense going on to be a good fit with Hope & Change.

    This is what happens when one declares themselves to be a Party Platformist and not an Obamao Socialist/Communist.

    What she wanted was whatever her vision of hope and change was. Instead, what she's disillusoned with is what is Obamao's deliberately undefined versions of hope and change wich turns out to be anti-Constitutional American subjectionism (which includes handing American soverignty over to foreign nathionals), cronyism, looting of the national treasury and thievery of public funds with, after almost two years, no foreseeable redirection.
